This is a half-length portrait with Lady Loftus wearing a blue dress. The portrait is double-framed by a painted oval at the bottom. The beautiful Anne Loftus was an orphan who was brought up together with the Earl of Stafford’s family. Anne Loftus’s grandfather, Sir Francis Rushe, Lord of the Manor of Clones, had estates in County Monaghan, Ireland. After his marriage to Anne in 1652, Sir Richard Lennard Barrett (1625–1696) assumed the Irish estates.
